Other local government units in the country want to replicate a proposed ordinance in Bogo City which seeks to establish a system of disaster preparedness in the family, said an official of the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

Willie Jean Cabanag, focal person for Disaster Risk Reduction Management-Climate Change Adaptation Programs of DILG-7, said they will soon come up with a policy making Bogo City’s disaster program dubbed as Information Management in Preparation for Disasters or “I.M. PrepareD” as model to other LGUs in the country.

“Ang gi-push gyod karon is family disaster preparedness. Na-interested ang department ani sa good practice sa City of Bogo nga family disaster preparedness gyod ba. So gi-recommend sa DILG-7 didto sa central nga ipa-replicate,” she said during a Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Summit on Tuesday.

She added the scheme under the said program caught the interest of DILG Undersecretary for local government Austere Panadero during his meeting with the city officials in Bogo last July 14.

The Bogo City’s ordinance institutionalizing the I.M PrepareD program for families, barangays, schools and business establishment is now up for second reading.
